  1. Akrapovic Evolution Installed on an M3 Convertible

    We installed another Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust yesterday, this time on an E93 M3. Being substantially heavier that its coupe and sedan counterparts, the 50lbs weight reduction was a welcome modification for the convertible. To squeeze even more power out of the S65 V8, we also installed the Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake Charge Kit, that in combination with the exhaust, gained 27hp and 21lbs-ft toque at the wheels. Lastly, to fix the sloppy manual shifter, the OEM unit was replaced with the super high-quality Rogue Engineering Octane Short Shift Kit for those precise, bolt-action-rifle shifts.

  2. Z3 on KW V2s with Macht Schnell Spacers

    When this customer came to us complaining that his Z3 wasn't handling like it used to, we knew what to do. As it turns out to be the case with many older BMWs, this Z3 had blown out shocks and several failed OEM bushings. To remedy the problem, we installed a set of KW Variant 2 (V2) coilovers, Poweflex front control arm bushings, Powerflex rear trailing arm bushings and Rogue Engineering rebuildable rear shock mounts. Once the car was lowered, it was obvious that the wheels needed to be pushed out to the fenders to complete the look. To finish the job we installed 18mm and 10mm Macht Schnell spacer kits. The owner couldn't be happier with the new set-up, saying it handles and rides 100 times better than before.
